Nano Dimension, a leader in the field of 3D printed electronics, announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Nano Dimension Technologies, has successfully 3D printed electrical circuits (PCB), in which it embedded electrical components, through placement, as an integral part of the printing process.  The company’s 3D printer – the DragonFly 2020 – enables 3D printing of PCBs with conductive ink and dielectric ink.

Today, the company announced a successful proof of concept of PCBs inkjet printing, in which electrical components were placed during the printing process.  The method presents several advantages.

It also makes obsolete the soldering process since the components are embedded within the printed board during printing.  The connectivity between components then takes place as part of the 3D printing process without the need for a mediating soldering material.

The new process enables printing on electronics components without their complete packaging (printing directly on the dye), and consequently supports the creation of thinner, more protected PCBs. This new and significant capability is expected to become supported in future versions of Nano Dimension’s 3D printers.

The company has filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for this unique development, which the company believes is significant for a wide range of industry sectors such as defense, space, consumer products, telco, and more.

The company has filed a patent application in the U.S. for this unique development.
